As previously communicated and following the arrival of Håkan Borgenhäll, one of Sweden’s leading intellectual property lawyers, as well as the recruitment of tier-1 ranked Ulf Dahlgren, Vinge continues to strengthen its full service IP Practice Group through the recruitment of Doctor of Laws Richard Wessman, who specialises in trademark rights.

Richard Wessman received his PhD in trademark law at the University of Stockholm in 2002 and joins Vinge from his current employer, the Swedish law firm von Lode.

”I am very pleased that Richard has decided to join our forward striving team,” says Håkan Borgenhäll, Head of Vinge’s IP Practice Group in Stockholm.

Borgenhäll continues “Richard combines solid academic expertise with substantial hands-on experience within IP, marketing law and commercial disputes and he will be a strong complement to the approximately 15 lawyers focusing on intellectual property law already working at Vinge.”

Richard Wessman is the author of a number of articles and publications and his most recent book, ”The Trademarks Act – a Commentary”, will be published in Swedish in January 2014 by Norstedts Juridik. Richard was also the Swedish Champion in chess in 1994 and has been a chess columnist for the leading Swedish daily newspaper, Dagens Nyheter for the last 20 years. Richard Wessman joins Vinge on 5 December.
